Jack Frost has been out to play. Our sheltered garden doesn’t see frost very often, but when it appears we know it was a cold night. I made a quick dash around the garden one morning this week and snapped these photos. Happy to see some proper cold weather at last — whose with me?
The bird bath was frozen to the core. I tipped some hot water on to melt the ice and two hours later, it had frozen over.
The sage has been covered in frost for two whole days; I think it looks better this way.
How have your gardens faired in the frost? Our clematis is almost bare and the lemon balm has gone black but everything doesn’t look too bad at the moment. Once Winter tightens its grip I’m sure it will start to look quite bare.
Don’t forget to put some food out for the birds, they need our help at this time of year.
Hope you’re all keeping warm!
